In an open letter to Mr. Ashok Singhal, a Hindu woman writes where we will all head if India becomes a Hindu nation by 2020, as he declares.
Dear Mr Ashok Singhal,
As far as I am concerned, I will formally convert to a religion called Humanity and leave the earth for a better planet since there will be no place for women like me in this Hindu World. Maybe, Pluto is the answer I am looking for.
Before ending this letter, I wish to remind you something. I assume you must be really proud of Hinduism and it might be the essence of your life. You must be ready to go to any lengths to make it flourish and give human beings the benefit of being Hindu. But, have you forgotten that the basic elixir of Hinduism is acceptance of differences and co-existing without harming each other?
Saffron might be the color you’re chasing, but India will always be incomplete without White and Green. The constitution makes us all equal in the eyes of Bharat, and you can’t change that in five years. Or a lifetime.

Maleesha who calls herself ‘Princess of Slum’ through her social media captions has now landed herself a space on the cover of Forest Essentials' new campaign.
“Dream, and one day that dream will come true” as said by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, many of us have goals to accomplish and we do dream about achieving them.
A huge dream has come true for a 14-year-old girl from a Mumbai slum area, Maleesha Kharwa. She has been a simple girl with a normal family until some time ago. Today she is the face of the popular skincare brand Forest Essentials.
Kharwa was first discovered by Hollywood actor Robert Hoffman in 2020 who later created a Go Fund Me page for Maleesha.
My mom was shocked to see how he behaved with me. This is when I realised that my husband’s behaviour was not normal and it was not my oversensitivity.
Trigger Warning: This speaks of domestic violence and may be triggering to survivors.
“Anju, let us go to Masi’s place since you can drive now”-this was my mom encouraging me to drive. I had just learnt driving, was extremely scared of using the reverse gear but my mom was happy to go with me to her sister’s place which was 15 kms away just so that I gain confidence in driving.
This is but one example of how she did everything possible to encourage me and my sister.
